A few moments before this picture was taken the rain and hail had ceased, the wind had blown the storm passed my house and a beautiful rainbow appeared in the east.
I stopped for a few moments to gawk at the hail on the ground, to watch the fluffy clouds slowly blow by and then I got back to manipulating paper into cards.
A good time was had by all...

The holidays are all about making hand-crafted decorations (and cookies, and gifts, and... and... and...)
So I started with a simple banner. It reads "Merry & Bright"...
These are individually cut triangles, strung up with a very thin silver string (through holes at each top corner of the triangle).
The "fringe" or "pleat" across the top is a 1/2" x 12" strip of thin scrapbook paper. I ran adhesive across the back of the strip and then roughly folded / glued it to the top of each triangle.
I ran the edge of the scrapbook paper along the edge of a stamp pad to give it some color and depth. And then used a friends letter cutting tool cut out the letters! The letters are then capped off with some silver glitter/glue to make it resemble a frosting of snow (sorta).
Are YOU making any decorations, gifts, etc this holiday season?
And yes, I think I'll be hanging some twinkle lights with this banner... but that will have to wait for the weekend...

Using a few pieces of 12" x 12" scrapbook paper I cut some triangles... and then decorated them.
I sure enjoyed hanging out in the craft room this afternoon...

Using Stampin' Up!'s Jolly Holiday Designer Series Paper and the Holly & Jolly Rub-Ons we can turn medium sized envelopes into sleeves for scrapped pictures. Glueing them together creates an accordion-like book that holds all sorts of memories.
Take a gander...
It's easy to embellish each layer and page with stamped images, rub-ons or other embellishments. Stampin' Up! creates all sorts of ideas that will work with this project simply perfectly!
The backbone of this scrapbook is two 6" x 12" strips... so cut one 12" x 12" page in half, yes... THAT easy! They are overlapped slightly in the middle panel.
Have fun! Enjoy!

In this package went the following items: sugar cookies, toffee, sweet and salty crunch.
One uber-lucky individual is going to receive this package in the next day or two... who will it be?! who will it be?!
As you can see I have repurposed a cute little tin ... and decorated it for a fun pre-Thanksgiving gift.
I had so much fun putting this together and sending it off! I can't wait to hear from the very special person who receives this in the mail...
